Wrinkles - What To Do About Them

Jun 29, 2008
Who does not want skin without wrinkles as they get older? I know that I want as smooth of skin as possible. To get smoother skin you need to know what makes it wrinkle in the first place. This article will discuss reasons that this aging problem occurs. Also we will look at some prevention and treatments also.

The epidermis or top layer of skin becomes less dense with age. This occurs when the epidermal cells lose their ability to bond. This also causes the skin to retain less moisture. Production of these cells also slows down making it harder for the skin to repair itself. One of the many things that happen because of this is wrinkles. The epidermal is not the only layer that affects this though the dermal layer can also age.

Products are on the market in cream form to treat wrinkles. I know there are creams that correct the problem, there are also creams that are for increasing the tightness of the skin. Face lift creams are available for an instant effect too. Creams for maximum moisturizing for the dryness are readily available too these days. I would use one of these creams to combat this problem before considering a medical alternative for this.

There are many specialized products that you may try to help with your fight against wrinkles. There are elixirs to add moisture, there are creams for lifting and to make the skin tighter, and mixtures to take the lines away. Experiment with some of these products before considering a medical procedure. You may just find you don't have to spend a lot of money to cure your problem.

Smoking should be avoided for the sake of your health and skin. The blood vessels constrict during smoking disabling the skin from getting correct oxygen. Carbon monoxide can increase due to smoking which makes the skin react badly. This can increase the amount of free radicals, which can cause the skin to age faster.

Another preventative to take when it comes the aging of the skin is not to smoke. Smoking decrease the skin ability to oxygenate itself. Carbon monoxide levels climb also because of the nicotine. When those levels rise the free radicals come out in higher numbers which can help the skin age and wrinkle.

Being outside especially in warmer weather can be hard on the skin. You need to protect yourself with sunscreen of an SPF of 30 or higher. Liberally apply sunscreen before enjoying the outdoors for sunbathing and other activities. You also need to apply it again during the day like every thirty minutes. Makeup and creams have a certain amount of SPF protection in them today also. You can protect yourself all day long with the products that are on the market these days. On the nutritional side drinking your water everyday will help your skin so much. Since wrinkles can happen because of dry skin then drinking your 6 to 8 eight ounce glasses of water a day can help. This helps from the inside to moisturize your skin. I hope the ideas in this article will help give you very smooth skin.
